An Interview

For today, just to shake things up a bit...I bring you Ingrid.  We are related in a most unusual way...but related nonetheless.  So aside from 'churching' together, we are at lots of the same family function-alities.  Most importantly, she is responsible for introducing me (and that guy that I like so much) to Belmont Shore and Le Creperie.  For that, I will be eternally grateful.


(stole this picture off her Facebook, but this is Ingrid with her nephew, Nolan)

What is your job?

I am a Match Support Specialist at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. Translation....I am basically a case manager who support "bigs", "littles", and parents by calling monthly or quarterly (depending on how long the match has been together) to ensure that the match is doing well, people are safe, etc. Pretty fun to be able to watch lives change as a result of being in our mentoring program.


How many different places have you lived?

Hmm...several. :)

Lyons, NE

Albuquerque, NM (multiple times)

Scottsdale, AZ

Salt Lake City, UT

Gillette, WY

St. Paul, MN

Bel Air, MD

Wasilla, AK

Long Beach, CA


Favorite food?

I like so many...anything from NM that has green chile is a given, I LOVE fruit, and would usually give my right arm for Swiss cheese.


Favorite drink?

Four way tie, no more, no less...

Water, coffee, beer, and wine. Couldn't live without 'em.


Favorite Bible verse?

I'm a pretty big fan of Psalm 90.


Best travel adventure?

Our church's mission trip to AK in 2006. We had several "hitches in our giddyup" on our return trip that have created many stories to tell. We were bumped from flights, stayed an extra night in Anchorage and then another night in Seattle, ate dinner at Denny's in Seattle, had a worship and communion service in a hotel room, experienced a hotel fire in the wee hours of the morning. It was nothing short of an adventure and really strengthened the hearts and relationships of team members.


If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?

I've been thinking about this one for weeks. I really think Belmont Shore, CA (where I lived for 4.5 years). It's a cozy community with a positive feel, great food and shopping, a gym that is to die for, a library in walking distance, and the beach! My only request would be to own a condo or house there and have parking. After parallel parking for 4.5 years, I would prefer not to do that again.


Greatest fear?

Disappointing my dad.

Summer plans?

Several...I haven't been this excited about summer in years. Possibly take a class at the community college, a trip to NM or two, and my favorite...attending the wedding of a long time friend in Cancun.

Isn't she grand?  She has a big adventurous spirit and an even bigger heart. For more about Ingrid, visit her HERE!


  1. Well aren't you a gem. I feel so special to be interviewed and blogworthy. :D Love it and love you! So glad to share the love of Belmont Shore with you and be part of the fam....I wouldn't have it any other way.

  2. My favorite verse is Hezekiah 4:11.
